A handful of Real Salt Lake players, including midfielder Kyle Beckerman and keeper Nick Rimando, have been called to their respective national teams.
Beckerman and Rimando joins the U.S. National Team for Wednesday's "friendly" against Mexico at Mexico City's the famed Estadio Azteca.
Also, Álvaro Saborío leaves for Costa Rica and a game against visiting Peru, while Will Johnson joins the Canadian national squad, which takes on Trinidad and Tobago in Lauderhill, Fla. Johnson could earn his 28 cap.
Should Beckerman play, it would be his 22nd appearance for the United States.
Saborío will earn his 71st cap for Costa Rica at San Jose’s Estadio Nacional, a stadium he last played during RSL's CONCACAF Champions League loss to C.S. Herediano on July 31.
